Odometer reading 64,958 miles
Estimate £72,000 - £84,000
An original righthand drive, UK supplied Series One E-type with matching numbers is becoming harder to find, especially below £100,000, or so the classifieds would have us believe.
Offered here, however, we have what can be considered one of the very best and offered at a very competitive estimate, with bags full of confidence and an excellent finish from the restoration carried out in 1985 by XK Engineering. The current vendor has owned the car since 2004 when it was purchased from John 'Mooneys' Cooper the racing motorcyclist in its original colour as stated on the Jaguar Heritage Certificate. It was almost a completely standard example with the exception of Cooper craft front brake callipers, 6J wheels and an up rated cooling fan with the mileage displaying a mere 58,000 miles.
The vendor used NGP 425D sparingly through to 2010 when the car was laid up until 2014. During this time the engine was re-built by the vendor, a talented mechanical engineer, with new valves, springs and JD phase 1 camshafts, it was also re-bored and the crankshaft reground whilst new cam chains and tensioner's/guides were fitted alongside XJS conrods and a new oil pump. During the rebuild the car was found to have a gas flowed cylinder head and this and the cylinder block face were lightly skimmed. The engine was refitted with a rebuilt starter motor, water pump, a replacement flywheel and a new clutch with the original gearbox reconditioned and the prop shaft rebuilt. The exhaust is a full Hayward and Scott system including six branch manifold, the front shock absorbers are adjustable and the car was waxoiled and returned to the road in 2014 showing just 63,000 miles.
The accompanying history file is full of receipts and invoices together with a full photographic record of the 1985 restoration. Shown at the Windsor Jaguar meet this year, this example is in fabulous order with little sign of any wear and the vendor states that it drives, unsurprisingly, like a dream and knocks spots off of many E-Types you will find on the road today. Offered at a very attractive estimate and with a fabulous history, we believe this E-Type will be a firm favourite.
